How to globally modify the spacing in the enumerate environment?

I managed to get it working for 1 level lists:



\item First level


\item second level

\item more

\item Back

\item Continue

\item Done


But the numbering is messed up for nested lists.

Is it really necessary that I do all of the code to handle nesting
when it's already in memoir/latex? If so, where do I copy-paste it

I found the definition for the \enumerate macro and thought it could
just be used here, but it causes an error.
